brooks was under president george w. bush. bob, i'm going to start with you if i can. so, at what point do you think the administration gets involved? is what we've seen now this sense they're creating weapons, is that enough? >> it's not enough. i think the fact they're mixing it is highly alarming, of course. if they start deploying this, if they start putting it on artillery shells, if it looks like they're really going to fire this stuff, i don't see any choice but we're going to have to go in. the west is completely, what i'd also like to say is that with the minority regime that runs s syria, would they use it, absolutely. if they're back is against the wall and they think they're going to go down, they will use any of these binary gases that would stop the revolt. i don't know they're at that point, but if they do, we really have to think about going in. >> so, peter, you've long been critical of how the administration has been handling this. do you think they should already be intervening? >> this red line which i think is a good idea and also could be signalling to the re

adviser to president george w. bush. gentlemen, nice to have you both. david, let's start with you. depending on who you listen to, it's either going great or not going well at all. they're either optimistic or completely pessimistic. which is it? >> i feel about this whole process as a basketball nonfan, i feel about basketball, which is start it 100-100 and play for five minutes to get it over with. but i think we also need to take a step back and realize just how lunatic this whole process is. what the united states does not need right now is either spending cuts or tax increases. what we should be thinking about is how to get growth. instead of the mishandling of the deal in 2011, we have to pretend that we have what is the most urgent thing to do right now is to balance the budget, do it immediately and come up with a ten-year plan in less than a month under the most unfavorable conditions possible using the income tax system which is the last place where we should be looking for revenues. we should be looking for revenues from different kinds of taxes. for taxes on consumptio

prosecuted by george w. bush. more interesting to me is the noths that ailes supposedly according to mcfarland on this tape trying to entice petraeus into the presidential race saying, you should quit unless obama offers you to be the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff. you should quit. you should run. i might leave fox and run your campaign. i don't think he would actually do that, but the idea that rupert murdoch might bankroll a petraeus candidacy not that farfetched when you consider murdoch has given on a couple occasion seven-figure sums to the republican party. >> and howie, in the interest of complete fairness, "the washington post" reached out to roger ailes for his response to that, and i want to read for you what he told "the washington post" according to the paper. he says this, i am going to read his words. it was more of a joke, he says a wiseass way i have. i thought the republican field in the primaries needed to be shaken up and that petraeus might be a good candidate. sounds like she, meaning k.t. mcfarland, thought she was on a secret mission in the reagan admin

commerce secretary carlos gutierrez serving under president george w. bush. let's talk first about the business community and get the questions right. as i'm saying them i'm reading them. are they willing to absorb tax hike if there's the end all, be all to not go over the fiscal cliff? keeping that in mind, would that wreck havoc in the business community? >> yeah. i can't speak for all business leaders but generally speaking a tax hike, a rate increase is not good for the economy especially at this time. this process is very disappointing. after everything we have been through and after the cam pin and the election, it seems like it's still a same tactical political poker it's always been. and the problem here is the world is watching. and it's almost like our system is being tested. can these guys still -- can these folks, these people, the congress, can the system still solve problems? >> we're -- the system is being tested by the very people who are -- which is odd. >> i know. >> they don't have to test it. they don't have to test the system. they can come to agreement without

does nothing. and those estate taxes revert to the levels they were before george w. bush was in office. those taxes were lowered to help us get through a couple recessions. this is unfair. people should be entitled to pass along their hard earned money. the concentration of wealth needs to be kept in check. it doesn't create dynastys. that was one of the earliest goals of this tax. as you said, the difficulty here is dividing up a house, or a farm or a going concern to pay a portion of the tax that is owed. that presents a problem for families having to pay that estate tax can affect the growth of family businesses. it's been fluctuating a lot in recent years. family run businesses can't plan for it. in the end it -- that part of things, the number of people who will actually have to pay that tax on big family estates farms or businesses is estimated to be about 50 people. 50 different estates next year. it's mostly a principle discussion. >> opponents call it the death tax. i haven't heard about you, in all the discussions over the past few weeks what might be over the deal. i haven't
